Is your mo­bile plan stress­ing you out?

It’s time you stop wor­ry­ing about your mo­bile data cap and roam­ing charges.


The prob­lem with mo­bile plans to­day is that in­stead of of­fer­ing so­lu­tions, they cre­ate un­nec­es­sary prob­lems for us to deal with.

Take for ex­am­ple the mea­ger 2 or 3GB data cap that some plans have. This caused many of us to check our us­age daily, in fear of ac­ci­den­tally ex­ceed­ing the limit and end­ing up with an ex­pen­sive monthly bill.

While we con­sume a lot of data these days, we also don’t want to be re­stricted by in­sufcient call min­utes. Ever had the ex­pe­ri­ence of try­ing to end a call quickly be­cause you were run­ning low on out­go­ing call min­utes?

Tra­di­tional mo­bile plans are also ill-de­signed for over­seas use. For pay-asyou-roam plans, it’s easy to rake up data roam­ing charges. Even if we were to buy a roam­ing pack­age, we’d be con­stantly wor­ried about bust­ing its limit or un­wit­tingly join­ing an un­sup­ported net­work, and end­ing up with an ex­or­bi­tant bill.

And don’t even get us started on charges for ser­vices that we weren’t aware of from the start. For ex­am­ple, do you know that caller num­ber dis­play is usu­ally not free, and you’ve to pay to use the ser­vice?

Thank­fully, there ex­ist plans that bet­ter t mod­ern data us­age pat­terns, and they come from MyRepub­lic. And they start from $35/ month for 7GB of data.

En­joy “bound­less” data with­out sacri cing the essen­tials

MyRepub­lic’s mo­bile plans come with “bound­less” data, which lets you con­tinue to use data for free be­yond your plan’s al­lo­cated amount. The con­nec­tion will be slower but still fast enough for you to keep on surng, mes­sag­ing, and call­ing non-stop. If you need the full speed, you can buy 30-day Data Boost­ers through the MyRepub­lic app.

Oh, did we men­tion that you still get 1,000 min­utes of talk time, 1,000 SMS mes­sages, and free caller ID?

Un­com­pli­cated roam­ing ser­vices to en­sure no bill shock

In­stead of pay-per-use roam­ing data charges, MyRepub­lic lets you buy Data Boost­ers for the amount of data you need be­fore you travel. Each roam­ing pack­age lasts 30 days and cov­ers a group of coun­tries. So if you’ve got­ten a 2GB pack­age and only used 1GB for your trip to Bali last week, you can use the re­main­ing data for your trip to Bangkok next week. For fre­quent trav­el­ers, the Xtra 85 plan ad­di­tion­ally comes with 2GB roam­ing data to seven coun­tries ev­ery month.

No con­tract, no hid­den charges, no non­sense

MyRepub­lic’s mo­bile plans don’t come with a con­tract pe­riod. You can even up­grade or down­grade your plan any­time you want with­out any charge or penalty. The fea­tures you get are also listed clearly up­front. For ex­am­ple, the Smart 35 plan al­ready gives you an am­ple 7GB of lo­cal data. If you need more, Mega 55 gives you 12GB. For very heavy data users, Xtra 85 of­fers 25GB per month. And here’s a pro tip: MyRepub­lic Broad­band cus­tomers can get up to 8GB bonus data each month!

There are many im­por­tant things to worry about in life, and your mo­bile plan shouldn’t be one of them.
